Blessed and counting

I know people watch the news... I know I should but I don't.  I don't like it.  I'd rather get a bulleton list of world events and miss all the melodramtic emphasis on all the terrible that goes on in the world.  It is the same reason I don't generally like movies based in real life.  I have enough real life in my own real life thank you.  When I go watch a movie I want to relax and enjoy the silly explosions, the bad guy getting what he "deserves", to laugh at the situations that don't really happen, swoon when the guy says the line only Austen could write... I want to relax and excape.


You're welcome :D


That being said, my life is pretty norm.  I have loads of things that go wrong.  I fail more often then I'll ever admit.  Don't even get me started on how you can't believe all that you see on Pinterest (or I'm just completely lacking in all skills Pinterest related), I have things I long for, I have dreams that elude me... but over all I have a pretty great life.

Often I over look my blessings.  Do you ever do that?  I mean really stop, even in your most down moment, and ponder what you have been given.  NO, I don't go so far as "Kids starving in Africa"... you don't need to.  I'm not homeless.  I have a nice roof over my head, that is clean (so long as I'm not tweaking from lack of sleep), I have a husband whom I love and who loves me (yes, all the work and all that included: when in doubt about how to love = stop and remember what you fell in love with them for in the first place), I have a daughter I get to watch develop, who is healthy and pretty clever considering, I have family around willing to help if needed, I have friends... oh so dear friends (old, new and dear!), I have a job I love, I get to walk each day with my daughter and talk to her about the things we pass...

You get the idea.  If you stop for a moment and think over your life: I bet you're pretty blessed too... maybe not as much but I bet you can find at least one thing.  So today I am taking the moment to relish on the good.  To set my eyes on what is postive and I will not let myself get taken down by my endless to do's, my crying daughter, failed dinner, slow business, seemingly endless dirty floor, etc

I push it all aside and invite you to take a deep breath or crisp winter air (depending on where you are I guess) and enjoy that today is the only TODAY we have!

God bless you!  If you need to rant remember I'm always here :D

Live. Love. Loud.
